Fonda / Stevens Group
"The Fonda/Stevens Group has evolved into one of jazz/improvised music's most accomplished ensembles. Straddling the line between post-bob and free, they have come up with consistently satisfying albums. What's impressive is how they create a cohesive unit without grandstanding egos getting in the way." - Cadence Magazine
With over 20 years of performing together in various ensembles, this powerful acoustic NYC based jazz ensemble features the music of bassist Joe Fonda and pianist Michael Jefry Stevens performing with master percussionist Harvey Sorgen and the brillliant modern jazz trumpet legend Herb Robertson.
The group has performed 13 European tours in the past 8 years (1997 - 2004) including radio broadcasts for BRTN (Belgium), Saarbrücken Radio (Germany), WDR Radio Köln (Germany), Radio Bremen (Germany), Radio Zurich (Switzerland), Radio Nürnberg (Germany) VPRO Radio Amsterdam (Holland) and has been featured artist at the Ottawa International Jazz Festival (Canada), Halo Jazz Days (Brugge, Belgium), Jazzmeille Thuringen (Weimer, Germany), Jazzkroe Gent (Belgium), and Westfalisches Musikfest 1998 (Munster Germany).
